North Carolina Nursing Home Tragedy

It just came to my attention that a gunman entered a nursing home in North Carolina and opened fire. Eight people are dead including one nurse and seven elderly residents. It must take incredible strength and courage to back into the home and care for the remaining residents. I wonder if a card of encouragement or a note of acknowledgment might help these staff members even a little. The address of the home is as follows. A link to the fox news story is below that.

801 Pinehurst Avenue

Carthage, NC 28327 – 8 Dead, 3 Injured in North Carolina Nursing Home Shooting – Local News | News Articles | National News | US News.

    When I heard about this shooting I thought to myself how accurate the scriptures are about the days we live in. 2 Tim 3:1-5. I pray that all of you can find the courage to continue and please don’t forget to ask for help from above. It is vital that you never blame God for any part of this!
    Take care.
